Science In Focus: Energy
Interview with Dr. Sallie Baliunas about forms of energy including springs and magnets.,Dr. Sallie Baliunas explains the energy transfers that occur when she pushes down on a spring and then releases it. She explains that she adds potential energy to the spring when she pushes it down, energy that is bound up in the coils. When she releases the spring, the potential energy becomes energy of motion. Some potential energy is used to move air molecules, producing sound, and some is lost to heat
Brazil Part 8: Feijoada, Brazil's National Dish
For recipes, visit www.ciaprochef.com/WCA Any discussion of Brazil's iconic dishes is incomplete without an in-depth look at the country's national dish- feijoada completa. Feijoada is more than just a bean stew... it is a cultural rite of passage.

6.972 Algebraic Techniques and Semidefinite Optimization (MIT)
This research-oriented course will focus on algebraic and computational techniques for optimization problems involving polynomial equations and inequalities with particular emphasis on the connections with semidefinite optimization. The course will develop in a parallel fashion several algebraic and numerical approaches to polynomial systems, with a view towards methods that simultaneously incorporate both elements. We will study both the complex and real cases, developing techniques of general

landscapes of capital
A companion to Landscapes of Capital by Goldman and Papson, this site is an archive of the TV ads referenced in the book. Ads are searchable by tags, transcriptions and analytical annotations. The authors envision this archival collection site as a place where scholars and students can: 1) exchange interpretations of the advertising texts and the cultural patterns they form; 2) help develop the analytic fields and categories to look for pattern and variation in the texts; 3) discuss methodologic

The aim of this module is to further our understanding of public policy – the nature, causes and effects of public policies; the policy process – how policy is made; and with prescription as to how policy might be improved. Since the effectiveness of policies and policy-making processes cannot be assessed independently of analysis of the distribution of economic and political power within political systems, this module also examines the central position of the state in policy analysis.

Core Physics PBL – An Insurance Scam?
‘An Insurance Scam’ is a first year PBL project to be undertaken by small groups of (approximately 4) students, working as teams to perform a variety of experiments to answer a set of questions posed to them. Each group will work in a couple of pairs, each pair performing some experiments and then sharing their findings with the other. The theory required for this PBL is written in the course book (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler), although some rational thinking may be required
